The AGT Universal Solar Panel Cooker

Applied Green Technology develops consumer products that generate heat and light by converting freely-available resources such as sunshine, wind and gravity.

Our product portfolio currently includes a range of high performance solar panel cookers, as well as economical and robust solar power and lighting systems, and we are in the process of developing a number of new products for water distillation and solar energy concentration.

We were set up in 2012 to commercialize the inventions of the late Matthew Rollins, Technical Director. Matthew was passionate about using freely available natural resources to generate energy and had spent many years designing products and systems. Roger Whitten, MD worked with Matthew on material composition and sourcing, whilst Viv Sloan, Marketing Director, is concerned with external communications and marketing.

Matthew has also arranged for Andreas Fasoulides, living in Cyprus, to visit Pakistan to lay the ground work for future solar cooking training workshops, to enable them to supply 100,000 solar cookers currently on provisional order. He also wants to explore sales possibilities in Latin America. Matthew is close to releasing his new solar cooker design developed from the basic CooKit solar panel cooker. It will feature the ability to be able to be adjusted to suit sun orientation at any latitude location on the globe. He states that with the ability to better gather and focus the light, it can often be used without the need for a cooking bag, subject to weather conditions.
